Both actually. After the war the American economy boomed until about the 1930s, but by then the problem was that the economy had grown too fast and then it becomes really confusing for me. Suffice to say, we grew too big too fast and we had no mechanism to protect ourselves and we collapsed under our own weight which is what started the Great Depression.
